Guy Pinard & Fils Carafe XO 1979 Cognac
The Guy Pinard & Fils Carafe XO 1979 Cognac is, as Guy Pinard has us believe, the oldest biological Cognac produced under the specifications known as the Méthode Lemaire-Boucher. This means it was crafted without chemical fertilizer, weedkillers, or synthetic pesticides. The European regulation for organic production was introduced in 1991, but this barrel of 1979 Cognac was kept by the house, who converted to organic production back in 1969. It truly is a unique Cognac.
Deep amber in color, with a complex yet rounded nose and palate it boasts unforgettable exceptionality. And of course, as one would expect of such an old Cognac, the finish brings with it new depths of length and a tasting experience. With a final that leaves nothing to be desired, it delights both a unique and memorable journey. Produced by a Cognac house that dates back to the 17th century, the quality of each Guy Pinard is undeniable. Proving that tastefully, the XO 1979 Cognac is exquisite evidence of both the impressive history and expertise that this house boasts.
Presentation of the bottle
Housed in a short, simple decanter this Cognac represents its history and brilliance with a bold, yet understated display. Offering the opportunity for its deep amber to catch the eye, the traditional gold serif type conveys the contents with sophisticated simplicity. A striking gold top ensures elegance is displayed down to the final detail. An excellent display for a Cognac cabinet, or to be exchanged as a remarkable gift.
How to enjoy
Guy Pinard recommends drinking this delight neat (of course), at a temperature of around 25 °C. To ensure, the highest quality tasteing experience enjoy from a tulip glass.
